In this episode we are joined by head psychologist and founder of the AntiLoneliness academy, Vassia Sarantopoulou. Vassia has more than 15 years experience in supporting men and women through adulthood challenges by using evidence-based therapeutic approaches to create practical and insightful actionable steps towards a life of fulfilment . We couldn't wait to have Vassia on our show to discuss the loneliness epidemic surfacing around the world and how we can work on accepting and navigating through our own feelings of loneliness as opposed to denying our emotions leading to further isolation.
During this conversation, Vassia takes us through the true definition of loneliness, the important purpose of our negative emotions to alert us that something is not right with how we are living, the threat loneliness can have on our physical health, how to manage feelings of loneliness while being single and how experiencing loneliness can actually breed more withdrawal and cause further loneliness. We also dive into a discussion on the development of an individualistic society and how homeostasis will play a role in allowing humans to explore new ways of being but no matter how far we go in a certain direction, we will always come back to a balanced way of living.
This was an extremely insightful conversation for anyone struggling with loneliness and how to actionably move through it with compassion, no one should feel alone in this world and everyone deserves genuine connection, this episode will bring you back to that realisation.
